cbbackup takes a password on the command line, which puts that password at risk of being exposed by any user on that server doing a ps().
Is it possible to initiate a backup (and restore) without providing the password in argv? Maybe there is a way to set an env variable that will be read by tools instead of reading argv?
If that isn’t possible, how about a REST interface? I looked over the docs, but didn’t see anything in the summary about starting a backup over REST.
An alternative would be for me to call the python library functions directly, but I’d like to avoid that if possible.
Any other ideas? Thanks in advance…
